Mrs. McCormack from Bronx NY is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

You Get a Book and You Get a Book!

My students need the chance to experience a bookstore where they can select their own books to read and keep for themselves.

My Students

My students have so little and I want to give them so much more. All of the students here come from homes below the poverty line, and I want them to have the chance to experience something that can influence their lives.

These students are so disadvantaged that many of them don't have access to the simplest supplies at home.

I want them to be exposed to as much as possible so that they don't fall behind in their future educational endeavors. They come from broken homes, are living with an aunt or grandparent instead of Mom and Dad, and many even come from homeless shelters or abused family shelters. They have a very bleak outlook on what life has to offer them and need to know they CAN make a difference in their lives with the power of an education.

My Project

My seniors are headed off to college soon and I want to celebrate their hard work and perseverance with a rewarding experience that will last longer than just the day we go on the trip. There are several students of mine who have borrowed books all year from my classroom library and they often beg me to buy them the next one or two in a series they've discovered. While I try my best, it's hard to come up with money enough to purchase them for everyone.

My goal is to give my students the chance to navigate a massive book store like Barnes and Noble and actually select books they want to take with them for keeps.

There's just something magical when you enter a book store and realize you have such an enormous buffet to choose from. The smell of the books, the quiet atmosphere, the scent of coffee coming from the cafe...you have to know what I'm talking about! Not only do my kids deserve a treat like this, they absolutely would appreciate it and take the experience with them for the rest of their lives.
